  1. well, this is what I see happening on my rig: - install navigraph airac: correct data - install antarctica: wrong data - install navigraph airac again: correct data Leonardo support didnt think it likely either that a scenerypack would interfere with their product as such, but there it is.
  2. I've had a bug happen with the Leonardo Maddog X, P3dV4.5. I could not enter a route in FSM from SAWH to SCGC, as that froze the sim or gave fps in the single digits. Distance between MBI and SCGC came out as 88000nm. Upon reporting a bug with Leonardo we came to the conclusion that the airac data of SCGC was wrong. <documents>\Maddog X Files\Navdata\wpNavAPT.txt has, after installation of Antarctica, the following values on SCGC: GLACIAR UNION SCGC18 09843180-999.000000-999.000000000.0018002461 GLACIAR UNION SCGC36 09843000-999.000000-999.000000000.0000002461 This should be: GLACIAR UNION SCGC18 09843180-79.777778 -83.320833000.0018002461 GLACIAR UNION SCGC36 09843000-79.777778 -83.320833000.0000002461 I fixed it by running navigraph update, overwriting the faulty data. Of course, one could also manually change this via the numbers above. I can confirm that the faulty data comes from the Antarctica pack. (re)Installing it gives the faulty data back in said file. Note this for me came up for the Leonardo Maddog, but I suspect this happens with other addons able to use airac data too.

  4. Mathijs, Thorsten has captured the sentiment exactly in his post above. We believe FSX the past, P3D the current but MSFS the future. MSFS' shortcomings are certainly not on the visual and scenery aspect. So if you can bring EAFS in a newer jacket to a newer platform than FSX, we would certainly appreciate a P3D version, like asked in the original post now almost 2 years old, but surely see more merrit in an MSFS version than P3D. This especially, as I said, as we see that sim as the future of flightsimming.
  5. Process question: with dare I state poor feedback from Aerosoft on this topic and the statement above that "the project is closed", why keep a support forum open if questions about proven(!) product bugs are not answered nor solved? This makes the whole use of a forum like this "debatable".
  6. Any news on this, as this is 100% repeatable for me at least?
  7. I too see this happening. It apparently happens that the generator, while on, does not power "fully" the aircraft and definately not recharges the battery. While flying, after a while, the battery dies (as shown on shift2 window) and you are left powerless. I think I can trace it back to the c&d button, but it could also be some other aircraft setting under the hood. I have to play around with starting on a default ac before going into the AN2. When engine running, I see the following on the battery amp meter (center console, 26 in manual) and amp meter (left dash, 10 in manual) : - bat off, gen off --> battery amp 0, amp 0 --> OK - bat on, gen on --> battery amp -2, amp 0.6 --> NOT OK - bat on, gen off --> battery amp 6, amp 0 --> OK - bat off, gen on --> battery amp 0, amp 0.6 --> OK It seems the bat on, gen on situation shorts out the charging or something: so battery drains despite gen on. And when it drains, gen does not power the aircraft anymore. So either i'm missing something, or something is quite not right. To circumvent, I just turn off batter and have gen turned on after startup, so i keep power and battery does not drain. I will check further on loading other ac before the AN-2 and/or use of the C&D button. see attached screen with gen on, bat off state.
  8. seeing this old thread but I experienced the same thing after installing the new v1.1.0.0 updated aircraft. I experienced the same thing but now got the message "brakes inhibited", which I dont remember from before. Searching in the manuals, I saw there is a switch for it on center console, 2nd row, left most switch. Most switches have to be turned upward (on). The brake main switch, next to air power open on the left hand lower console, is an inhibitor switch, so turning it ON/UPWARD turns on an inhibitor effectively switching off the brakes. Turning it OFF/DOWN solved it for me. Maybe this is what's the case here too, as I don't remember the notice from before the v1.1.0.0 upgrade?
  9. Dear Matthijs, As you know I am current CEO of Andras Meridian virtual Airlines (AMA), the VA that has been set up shortly after Aerosoft's release of Andras Field. In the years we have grown and shrunk in pilots, but especially grown in fleet and network and sporting a very healthy balance on our virtual bank account. Starting up with a handful of Cessna 206's doing local German charter work, we now have a fleet of 115 aircraft, ranging from Air Taxi to Intercontinental heavy iron's; our network encompassing the globe, connecting Andras Field to 13 other hubs and many other fields around the world. The people, having gotten to know one another via Andras Field, then it's pilot group and now it's VA, are now a core of close friends loving the world of flight simulation. And maybe not known to you anymore, but you still hold an honorary pilot's account as AMA122 on our roster as thanks for bringing us our beloved home. With most of our pilots having homes/plots on the field and our virtual airline home and main terminal on Andras Field, we have called it "home" for a long time. As it stands now though, all of our pilots have now transitioned away from FSX to P3Dv4. This means we can not fly from and to our beloved virtual home, our own homes and plots and use Andras Field as our central hub. As you may remember we talked about this briefly when me and some of our pilots visited the FSweekend last year. We will never change our name, as the field you released is sacred to us and valued in our name. However, with the location in P3Dv4 a vacant plot next to the Forgensee, it gives a non-flyable airport and hub in our network, which without action may well be erased from our network as our VA system for obvious reasons. Therefor, with all of our active pilots now transitioned to P3Dv4, we now humbly request you to port Andras Field from FSX to P3Dv4, and maybe even look at the current state and rework, as the couple squabbling in the background have long ago split up and moved out and the christmas tree is getting kinda dry without us watering it on a regular basis ;-). I hope you can accomodate our request in the near future. Next to mailing this request to you directly, I will also post this on the Aerosoft forum, in the hope it will garner support from other virtual flyers currently not affiliated with AMA. With the warmest of regards, Toby L, CEO, AMA141 Thorsten R, COO, AMA119 Zeno M, CIO, AMA214 Bernhard R, AMA101 Ole A, AMA102 Lars D, AMA116 Ian P, AMA174 Ruud M, AMA195 Dirk N, AMA210 José Carlos Q, AMA218 DB D, AMA220 Philippe U, AMA227 Dale H, AMA228 Dirk van T, AMA229 Gernot Z, AMA230 Marcel M, AMA232 Yiling O, AMA233 Mark N, AMA234
  10. I simply love the QW/F1 146. She doesn't have thrustreversers, so yeah, set those auto spoilers and use the airbrakes. They are very efficient. And Mikonos is on my wantedlist as well, so that will happen too. For now I'm busy circumventing Scandinavia for Andras Meridian Airlines. Next stop: Valan (northcape!).
  11. Well, I forgot about it too . But looking forward to another nice flight with you guys in which my T-38 or brandnew 146 series can be put to the test .
  12. I think any GA parking will do, as they're generally big enough?
  13. I'm very much eyeing the QW Bae146 series, which came out last weekend. It looks like holding out on the JustFlight version like Matt suggested was spot on. Has anyone bought it yet? Impressions from the quallity wings and Flight1 websites and youtube are very good imo.
  14. Blowing some life back into this old thread... Since flying online again this week with some nice folks has whetted my online appetite again, I hereby have a suggestion which I myself intend to follow strictly: Whenever I'm flying, either offline or online, I'll at least be online on the Aerosoft Teamspeak server. That way a very spontaneous online flight can be set up, just by asking me (or anyone) on the TS channel. A server is set up in no time and enough fun can be had. I had a very nice flight this week with just Dave (aka Habit109), which inspired me to start this. So, if you are flying sim on FSX (but Rise of Flight could also do for instance), just also be logged in on the Aerosoft Teamspeak server. If everybody here does this, there will most likely be a lot more action at EAFS or other fields online than we've had before. If you're asked to come online flying but can't, or maybe first want to finish your offline flight, that's fine too ofcourse. This idea is just for presenting more opportunities to fly online with eachother. What say you?
  15. Dave, I noticed some omissions in some of the repaints myself. In the parts that are to be pasted in the aircraft.cfg, under the [sim] part, sometimes T38A or T38A1 is mentioned instead of T38A3. I changed all to T38A3, since all the regular paints have that, although I haven't accounted if all is well (all repaints showing and working under the aircraft menu). Furthermore, always make sure that under the [fltsim.xxx] the xxx is an inclining number. Any break in the "chain" (ie 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7) will make all repaints after the missing number not visible under the aircraft list. As far as TrackIR is concerned: It is my most useful and never to be missed addition to FSX, or any flightsim for that matter. I simply can't fly without it anymore.
  16. No worries, Matt. There will be other occasions.
  17. Dave, easy and not very sophisticated. I use TrackIR, so in any look just turning my head gives me a correct image on the screen. I only have to adjust vertical angle via my hatswitch and sometimes the zoom. Just tapping the 'V' for screenshot does the rest. Images are stored in ../my documents/pictures/fsx as BMP with date and timestamp for a filename, so no overwriting of previous pictures. Converting them to JPG via paint.net (also use that together with dxtbmp for repainting) is a breeze, after which I can upload them. I'll upload them to the MilViz site too, good idea. I got all the repaints I have, including the Navy Testpilot School one from last night, via the MilViz forum. Some are directly on there, others are linked on simouthouse, avsim or flightsim. The Talon is a twitchy one, with all that power but o so small wings. The rudder is never to be touched when wheels off the ground, so I've found out the hard way.... Turning? Bank 30 degrees and pull back on the stick! Using rudder throws you in a snaproll. I think I'll do some aerobatics tonight at EAFS with her, plus figure out the TACAN/VOR radio and how the ILS works. She's not that hard as long as you keep the speed up. The AOA indexer and -Indicator are very useful tools (page 99 and 100 of the POH)! In the end, the hardest thing to do is to fly economically with her. I think I would have gotten from EAFS to LGIR in one go, If i'd have climbed to her absolute ceiling of 55000ft on full MIL power, NOT using the afterburner for takeoff and initial climb and gliding down to LGIR for the last 100 nm. As it was, I came in on LGKR with 25% fuel left and in LGIR with 70% left. She'll maintain 380kts IAS @ 25000ft with a fuelflow of 1200 and fly some 1000nm while doing that. Climb to 33000ft (in 1 minute!) on full afterburn and the tanks are 30% down. I try to fly online a lot, but am shy of "professional" organisations like VATSIM or IVAO. Some likeminded individuals in comparable aircraft are all that's needed!
  18. Thanks Habit for a nice flight from Corfu to Heraklion tonight!
  19. Habit, strange. I have win7 64 and no trouble with nl2000. Ihave both switzerland and austria, but the missions from verticalstudios are great without. Hope to see you both tonight!
  20. For those interested: I intend to fly EAFS - LGIR again tonight using the MilViz T-38. I reckon I can do EAFS - LGKR, or maybe some field less farther, after a refueling going to LGIR. The total trip should take about 2,5 hrs. I'll do it online again, making my own gamespy server (to join me in the air) and using the Aerosoft Teamspeak server for voice. I think I'll be online from about 17:30 UTC, or 19:30 UTC+2 (Dutch time accounting summer DST).
  21. If in doubt, look at the FAQ on the NL2000 website. I had issues some time ago and went through a world of hurt, when I just should have unticked all modules in the installer, install the new installer and re-tick all modules. I'll see if i'll put up "my own" adventure up here to fly in the Netherlands online. First the weather should get worse, so I have a legitimate excuse for wife and kids to go fly online on an extended period. P.S. Our wives should never meet, EVER!
  22. Habit, T38: T38 POH manual is on the milviz T-38 website. It's the real deal, about 280 pages, but I've flown from Andras Field to Venice yesterday with pretty much nothing more than common sense and the occasional "what does that button do?" NL2000: It seems all NL2000 modules on their website are downloadable via torrent, avsim or dedicated ftp link. It IS a framerate eater, but can be manageable with slidersettings. I use the FSPS FSX booster from simmarket with good result myself.
  23. On the return trip i'm DEFINATELY using the milviz T-38. I got it this weekend at 50% off (going till sept 5, wink wink) and man what a rocket!
